The traditional method of bedding ridge tiles in composition mortar is still the most popular fixing system used throughout England, Wales and Ireland. However, storms and unusually high wind speeds over recent years have emphasized the failings of these unreliable and old-fashioned systems. Mechanically fixed ridge tiles are already the most popular choice in Scotland and have proved extremely successful in reducing incidents associated with high wind speeds. These systems have also increased roof finishing times since mechanical fixed ridges can often be installed during wet and frosty conditions.
Provides a robust fixing for ridge tiles whilst covering over the joints between the tiles and allowing the recommended 5mm ventilation if required depending on ridge roll used and application. The Fast Fix Ridge kit (FFR-306 or FFR-606) contains all the components, including the fixings, to complete a six meter ridge. Please note that Ridge End Caps are not included in the kit but are available separately to suit ridge tile type.
